We hope to carry forward the DilThi Gujarati legacy of this channel with the launch of the new shows while continuing to provide wholesome family entertainment to our viewers.”

Launching a socio – mythology show on the channel, Kumkum Na Pagla Padya chronicles the story of Kumkum,  a  devotee  of  Mataji.  The  villagers  believe  that  Kumkum  possesses  healing  powers  but Kumkum believes that faith doesn’t make things easy, it makes things possible. However, Destiny has other things in store for her and she is married to Jai, who suffers irreversible bipolar syndrome. Will her faith give her the strength to fight this battle?

Preet, Piyu Ane Pannaben is drama series based on the paradoxical relationship shared between a mother in law and her daughter in law. Most Gujarati families refer to their daughters in law as “aa amari vahu nahi pun deekri jevi j che but Pannaben says ‘aa mari vahu to deekri thi pun savai che”,placing the daughter in law above her very own daughter. This family entertainer will air every Mondayto Saturday at 9pm. Jay and Kinnari Mehta will be producing the show under the banner of JAY PRODUCTION.Elaborating on the new shows, Sanjay Upadhyay – Programming Head, COLORS Gujarati said, “We understand that Gujaratis thrive in closely knit families.
